Deploy and Remove FindFace

FindFace provides two basic deployment options:

  • from a console installer

  • step-by-step from an APT repository

These options fork into a variety of deployment cases covered by this section. You will also learn how to remove a FindFace instance from your server.


Starting the GPU-accelerated services findface-extraction-api and findface-video-worker-gpu for the first time after deployment may take up a considerable amount of time due to the caching process (up to 45 minutes).


Although FindFace provides tools to ensure its protection from unauthorized access, they are not replacing a properly configured firewall. Be sure to use a firewall to heighten the FindFace network protection.
